Where do I start - The sales representatives are taught well. They will manipulate you into thinking their product is great and will give you no issues, but that's far from the truth. I heard their sales representative present their product and while all seems to be on the leading edge of technology, it really isn't. The company takes no responsibility for any of their network issues, from outages or no service on your phones. Not only will your phones only work 50% of the time (if that) but when submitting a ticket for support, you have to go through their help desk first and getting a response from someone on their technical side is a never ending cat and mouse chase. That is, if you get someone to reply to you. Outages happen every three or so weeks, sometimes less, causing your phones to go out every so often. So if you like paying for terrible service from tech reps who sound like they hate their jobs and never actually having your phones or circuits work, iCore/Vonage is great for you. Please do yourself a favor and stay far away from this atrocious company.
Customer service completely SUCKS, both technical support and account management in response time and in solving the issues. The quickest I have had a "high priority" ticket fixed is 6 hours, and right now there is one that it has been 3 days and it is still not fixed. And I have had multiple techs working on the same ticket because I call in to get an update and they try and walk me through the same troubleshooting steps the tech before them had be do because they don't manage their ticket system well or the employees are just too lazy to enter in what they already had me try.<br /> The phone system they gave us (Polycom VX500) has had issue after issue rising after 6 months of use. One major issue happened that it was proven it was the phones before 1 year warranty expired, but they procrastinated getting new phone and then after the one year tried to give the excuse they weren't under warranty anymore. Horrid reviews of the phones were found online after this. Our network partially discounts at least once a week for at least 1 employee's workstation, and again they take forever to get it fixed.
In a "Need it Now" technological world, there is no room for poor customer service and unqualified representation. My company had many issues with FonAngle, mostly, the fact that anytime our Tech Support wanted to talk to FonAngle tech support, it was like we had just asked to meet with The Pope. We had to e-mail someone, every time, anytime we had an issue. Every time I picked up the phone, I received a run-around telling me that I had to e-mail my issue to a generic email and wait for a response. Who has time to wait? Who has a Tech Support number, that only directs you to submit an e-mail. I digress.. The main issue with FonAngle is their horrible customer service. When we tried to get better customer service, they actually told my company to look for better service elsewhere. So we did. And I must tell you, Jive.Com has been amazing.
The support has been very good. Our representative has been responsive and has kept me informed as to progress on the issue we had, which was something FonAngle had not encountered before. He arranged a time with me that was convenient to spend - only about 10 minutes total - to correct the problem on each of our devices. He went the extra mile and restored some data that normally we, as the client, may have been asked to do. He saved us time and more aggravation. In addition, I had a question re billing which he immediately forwarded to billing. The billing rep answered within minutes via email.
